RABAT TO CHEFCHAOUEN
TRANSPORT / DAY TRIPS / TRANSFERS
CHEFCHAOUEN PRIVATE TRANSFERS
Chefchaouen is a traditional Moroccan town hidden in the Rif Mountains in Northern Morocco. We offer one-way transport from Rabat to Chefchaouen and vice-versa, as well as private day trips to Chefchaouen starting from Rabat. Our Rabat to Chefchaouen service allows you to make the journey in comfort, with hotel pick-up and a private vehicle. The prices are clearly displayed on the website and there are no hidden charges. You can view all of our Chefchaouen transfer prices by scrolling down this page.
We always provide a private vehicle for all trips. We don't provide shared services so you will never have to share. Your group will be the only people in the vehicle, plus the driver of course, on your transfer to Chefchaouen.
We'll pick you up directly from your hotel or chosen address, and drop you off exactly where you want us to. If your hotel is inaccessible by car (e.g. historic centre of Chefchaouen), the driver will arrive on foot.
Although the Rif Mountain region in the North of Morocco is noticeably cooler than the southern regions, temperatures can still be very high between April and October, so air-conditioning is vital.
DAY TRIP TO CHEFCHAOUEN
In addition to our one-way transfers, we also offer day trips to Chefchaouen. We class a Chefchaouen day trip as transport in the same day from Rabat to Chefchaouen to Tangier, with the waiting time in Chefchaouen also included in the price. Due to Moroccan working time regulations for professional drivers, and to ensure safe working conditions, the waiting time in Chefchaouen is limited to 4 hours. Bear in mind that this is more than enough time for 99% of visitors. If you plan to spend longer than this, please book two one-way transfers.
The route from Rabat to Chefchaouen passes by a town called Tetouan, an ancient world-heritage site city. You can combine a day trip from Rabat to Chefchaouen with a stop in Tetouan.
Just add it as an extra when you book!
WHY IS CHEFCHAOUEN BLUE ?
The town began as a Moorish fortress welcoming exiles from Spain in 1471 but it was not until the latter part of the century when Jews fleeing the Spanish Inquisition came to town that Chefchaouen turned blue. The Jews were said to have introduced the tradition of painting buildings blue to remind them of God and to reflect the dazzling blue of the skies.
Whatever the truth may be, the picturesque blue palette became the town’s unique identifier and transformed it into a photographer’s Eden and a travel blogger’s dream.
